While WW II rages in Europe, Toby Peters is caught up in his own war in Hollywood. Luna, a blonde beauty, wants to learn to dance, and her mobster boyfriend wants Fred Astaire to teach her. Toby gets called in to get the untalented and rather loose Luna off Fred's back--and every other part of his anatomy. Dancing as fast as he can, Toby must unmask a fast-footed killer, and keep America's favorite hoofer from trading in his tap shoes for cement galoshes.

display_description To save a film star's fingers, Toby Peters gives dance lessons Fred Astaire has a headache named Luna. The moll of a well-known Los Angeles gangster, Luna has demanded dance lessons from Hollywood's finest hoofer, and whatever Luna wants, Luna gets. But after two lessons with the lead-footed lady, Astaire tires of her making passes at him, and hires famously discreet private investigator Toby Peters to break the news gently. Trouble is, Luna and her boyfriend-nicknamed "Fingers" because he likes to cut them off-don't take bad news well. To protect the star's digits, Toby attempts to pass himself off as a dance instructor. For his troubles, he earns a spanking from Fingers and a promise of more pain if Astaire doesn't come around. Not long after, Luna surfaces with a cut throat, never to dance again. Toby may not be a dancer, but to escape this deadly mire he has no choice but to stay nimble and keep his feet moving.
